Each December Umpqua Bank partners with local nonprofits to connect with community members through their Wish Upon a Star program. Wish Upon a Star® is a signature Umpqua program granting the basic needs or special requests for those struggling through tough times during December.
This year two families whose kids are Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County Club members were granted some very special wishes.
One mother, who has two boys and another unofficial foster son, was granted a wish for new clothes and shoes for the kids. She currently works two part-time jobs, being paid just over $10. She has a very positive attitude and is working hard to be a good example for her boys. She even volunteers as a coach for a flag football team. When asked why she had agreed to have the third child move in with her, she said, “you help people when they need help and he needs help.”
The second family is a family of nine. They have their own children and foster others. The children range in age from 1st grade through 11th grade. They make ends meet by being very frugal, and had been saving pennies to purchase a dishwasher. Umpqua’s Wish Upon a Star program granted their wish for a new dishwasher.
Thank you Umpqua Bank for being so generous and reaching out to help deserving members of our communities. To listen to the reactions of these families and others who received gifts this holiday season click here.
This year the Ford Motor Company Fund and the Northwest Ford Dealers association partnered with five Clubs at BGCSC: the Alderwood Club, the Brewster Club, the Everett Club, the Marysville Club and the Snohomish Club to provide over 28,000 healthy meals and snacks to local kids in the months of November and December.
Each Club was the recipient of $1,000 from the fund and the Brewster Club received an additional $1,000 from Town Ford Lincoln in East Wenatchee.
Thank you for helping to feed local kids and for supporting the Boys & Girls Clubs of Snohomish County.
